ADA Compliant Signs Don’t Have to be Ugly!

By |

Beautiful Sign Design

For some reason, there is a common misconception that all ADA compliant signs are ugly and lifeless. This doesn’t have to be true! While there are certainly plenty of facilities that opt for cookie-cutter signs with boring fonts, colors, materials and pictograms, you also have plenty of chances to customize your signs so they show off the character and personality of your organization. You can accomplish all of this while still being compliant with all ADA sign regulations.

We have been in the custom sign business for a long time, and have seen many examples of businesses choosing only uppercase white Helvetica text on a navy blue background, doing just enough to meet compliance standards. While there’s certainly nothing wrong with going with the “classics,” there is so much more available to you in the wide world of ADA signs!

Consider the materials alone that you have to work with. Our materials at Erie Custom Signs include frosted acrylic, corian, chemetal, Rowmark ADA alternative acrylic, high pressure laminate, wood grains, plexiglass and more. Our design options include a wide range of colors, fonts, shapes and pictograms that allow your signs to be clear and readable in any language. You can ensure all designs you select will fit within the motifs of your business, and can even design special images or themes yourself for us to use, giving your business some added originality in its signage.

The signs that you place throughout your facility can have a big impact on the way your visitors perceive your organization. Having plain, boring signs can portray your organization as being cold or boring. Don’t you want to take advantage of every opportunity you have to show people the kind of personality your organization actually has?


Contact us today at Erie Custom Signs for more information about how you can create unique, custom designs for your ADA compliant signs. We look forward to answering any questions that you have for our team.
